Article Writing As A Career

By: Robert Thomson

Everyone has come across that one website while they were surfing that seemed like it was written by a four year old and tossed, randomly, through a translator. Websites like this are put online simply because the owner of the site does not have the money available to actually pay for a good writer. Instead, they pay someone from a foreign country to write an article for an extremely low price and they never sound right when you read them. Spelling mistakes are one thing, but incoherent sentence structure is something else and should never be seen in the light of day.
You will also find that there are a lot of articles online that have been run through a spinner. These spinner programs will take a basic article and create multiple articles out of it by spinning the words. Most of the time the extra articles you get out of it make absolutely no sense at all and you will not be getting paid very much for them. These are the types of writing jobs you are going to want to avoid having to do if you are looking to become an online article writer.
If you are new to writing articles, then you should stay with simple 300 to 400 word articles that do not require too much research. This will allow you to get a decent price for them and they will not take very long to write. Once you get some articles under your belt, then you can move on to higher word counts and even eBooks or whole websites. The larger the project the more money you are going to get. Unfortunately, most people that will hire you do not understand how important it is to pay their writers, and that could end up meaning a lot more work on your part.
Becoming an article writer is a great way to make a living, but you are going to have to be motivated enough to do the work. You are going to have deadlines and you are going to have more work than you would normally like to handle on your own. These are facts about article writing that you will come to understand after a few months. The good thing is that once you get some decent clients, you will find that the money is great and the work becomes easier for you. Getting your name out there as a professional is difficult, but once it happens, you will find that you have a lot more time for yourself and working turns out to be fun.
